Although I'm loving all of them, my favorite story is probably Damsel in Distress by M.W. King. I love twists on classic fairy tales and exciting new spins on cliche tropes. She took the famous "knight saves princess" story and made it her own, and though I can't tell you my favorite part (because spoilers) I can tell you that it would make a great movie.
Kudos to each and every author for the amazing worlds they've brought to life in the short span of each story. I hope to read more by you all soon!
Laura Callender’s “Born of Elements” is exciting and unique. It is full of emotion and tugs at the heartstrings. She wrote very realistic characters and feelings into a story that is very much all fantasy!
“Which Shoes” by C.L. Steele has a Harry Potter mixed with Wizard of Oz feel, with magical elements of hidden worlds and magical shoes. The characters drive the story forward, wanting you to know what will happen next, wishing for the best.
This collection's approach to magic is eclectic; in some cases, magic only lightly touches a story and veers toward classical fantasy in a realm where magic is possible. This approach worked for me, because immersing myself in pure magic for extended periods of time makes my head swim. Both fantasy and magic aficionados will enjoy the variety of stories in the Chasing Magic collection, because each one takes you to a different world, as this small sampling of the stories indicates.
"Honor" by Jennifer Della’Zanna begins with what might be an ordinary tale of sword and sorcery and a warrior, albeit a woman with some characteristics of an amazon. As you learn about how she became a hero as she awaits her Confirmation, you think you know where this story is going. You would be wrong.
"Morríghan" by Stacey Jaine McIntosh retells the King Arthur story from Morgan le Fey's POV and is reminiscent of Mists of Avalon, one of my all-time favorite books.
"Aomedus Fell" by Kathrin Hutson is wonderfully sardonic. I mean, you have to love this kind of writing: Aomedus—goddess of independent thought and strength. She was only a replacement deity, having been created just a handful of centuries before. The Olympian gods had returned to their Mount long ago, when the fall of Greece had become an imminent tragedy.
So, seriously, get yourself some magic and buy a copy today.
